Alan Silvestri to score both Avengers: Infinity War movies
Composer Alan Silvestri has taken to his official website to announce that he will return to score both of the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War movies. Silvestri previously provided the score for Captain America: The First Avenger and Marvel’s The Avengers, his main theme for which has been reused in a number of subsequent Marvel movies. His other notable credits include Back to the Future, Predator, Forrest Gump, and The Polar Express; he received Academy Award nominations for the latter two.
Production on the two Infinity War movies is set to begin in November of this year in Atlanta, Georgia with both movies being shot back to back. Directors Anthony and Joe Russo, who return after Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War, will direct the features and have since confirmed that they will be retitled before their release.
It remains to be seen which characters will be the primary focus of the film, though we do know that Captain Marvel will appear in the movies ahead of her solo movie in 2019.
Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely will pen the scripts for the two features which directors Anthony and Joe Russo will film entirely in IMAX. Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 is slated for a release in theaters on May 4, 2018; Part 2 will open on May 3, 2019.
